Patron Saint of our Parish - St. Peter


Simon Peter or Cephas, the first Pope, Prince of the Apostles, and founder, with St. Paul, of the See of Rome. Peter was a native of Bethsaida, near Lake Tiberias, the son of John, and worked, like his brother St. Andrew, as a fisherman on Lake Genesareth.

the silver kadas
i sold off to
pay for stolen
hopes a lost
moment in time
lost illusions
it seems
pathos passion
poetry
entombed
in the cavernous
grave inundated
with my blood
sweat tears
on my photo stream
the flesh was
willing surrendered
the captive soul
lets our a
painful scream
all lost
nothing but
a tattered
winding sheet
waiting to
be redeemed

I have as a blogger as a street photographer pedestrian poet of sorts through imagery of words and pictures captured their eternal pain, some of my best friends are gay and I have the best of relationship with them.

Every year I leave my work I come out on the streets bare feet in the hot sun shoot the Queer Azadi March to show my solidarity with them like others who join in and support this human cause .... I am no big gun photographer I but shoot what others dont shoot I shoot …
